About This Quiz

No certified romantic comedy lover is worth their cinematic salt if they don't know the 80s movie, "Overboard." The film has a cult following, which should be reason enough to watch. While it might not be one of the best-known comedies of the 1980s, don't let it slip under the radar.

Released back in 1987, the movie was helmed by Garry Marshall, the late, great director of other Hollywood rom-coms such as, "Pretty Woman" and "The Princess Diaries," as well as TV shows such as, "Happy Days" and "Mork and Mindy."

"Overboard" leads us through a series of absurd events involving a yacht, an employee out for revenge and a case of amnesia. Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn work their theatrical, comedic charm in this film while the chemistry of the real-life and reel-life couple oozes from every single frame.

The film was so beloved that it was remade in 2018 and starred Eugenio Derbez and Anna Faris.
